NYC SST Training

Discover course details and enroll today!


As of recent, NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) requires construction workers to hold an SST Worker card. SST cards require 40 total hours of DOB-approved,  on-site safety training. Without an SST card, you will not be permitted to work at any New York City jobsite with a Site Safety Plan.

Meet your Local Law 196 training requirements completely online with our convenient SST, OSHA 10 and OSHA 30 courses. Once you complete your training, you can request your 40-hour SST Worker card.

Target Audience

Under Local Law 196, construction and demolition workers at any site with a Site Safety Plan must hold an SST and SST worker card. An easy way to determine if you need the NYC SST is if there is a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager at your job site. For any questions, contact our team.
